Gareth Southgate has named his 26-man England squad for next months European Championship qualifiers.

The Three Lions host Bulgaria on 7 September at Wembley Stadium before Southgate’s men play Kosovo at St Mary’s three days later as they continue their qualifying campaign ahead of Euro 2020.

And England have made a 100 per cent start after comprehensive victories over both Czech Republic and Montenegro back in March.

Harry Kane scored in both of those wins and the captain has unsurprisingly been named in the squad along with his Spurs teammates Danny Rose and Harry Winks.

Winks has not played for England since November 2018 and missed the UEFA Nations League in June because of an ongoing ankle problem. But the Tottenham midfielder has proved his fitness levels by starting all of Spurs’ Premier League games this term and has earned himself a recall by Southgate, whilst Rose keeps his place.

Kieran Trippier, who left the club for Atletico Madrid earlier this summer, is back in the squad after his Nations League snub, but Manchester City right-back has not been included.
